I'd start with the vacuum leaks. Check all the hoses.
Clean the maf, and check the codes.
The check engine light is on, or it may be burned out; check it with a code reader.
Check the spark plug wells for water or coolant.
Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail.
If the cats are clogged, unbolting the front o2's should let it start.
That's where I'd start.
